Disney has just released a behind-the-scenes video for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, which is set to open in 2019 at both Disneyland (summer) in California and at Disney World (fall) in Florida. This sneak peak gives us a preview of two of its main attractions: Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. “It will be jaw-dropping and incredibly emotional to walk into the land for the first time, to actually be standing there amongst the buildings, amongst the ships and have this feeling that it is all real, that it has been brought to life, and it is right there in front of you. It’s overwhelming,” said Carrie Beck, vice president of Lucasfilm Story Group. Read more for pre-alpha Millennium Falcon ride footage and additional information.
Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance turns you into a recruit for the Resistance who comes face to face with villain Kylo Ren, while Smugglers Run “puts you straight in that cockpit, right behind the controls, whether you’re one of the pilots, or the gunners or flight engineers that are keeping the ship operating. It is going to be an intense, super-fun experience on the fastest ship in the galaxy.”
